I hope my father was able to see this! He bought me my first saxophone in 1988, a Selmer Mark VII. When I was 11, 21 years ago, he bought me a Mark VI. I shared my Mark VII with 4 different students of mine that they need a saxophone at some point of their lifes.
That's Selmer, Selmer is forever, if you love it! and if you take care of them, different generations can enjoy the instruments.
